“For over 500 Mn users in India, their smartphone has become the gateway to a digital lifestyle. Even though they don’t have a computer, with the help of various tools built by Kaagaz, they can take care of all the documentation-related tasks for their businesses, work, school & life in general, easily! Our aim is to empower these users & help them be part of the mainstream digital economy”, says Snehanshu Gandhi, CEO of Kaagaz.

The vision of Kaagaz is to become Mobile ‘Office’ for Bharat users & eventually target a global audience who have come to the digital world with a mobile phone.
